Touring Tips

Extended Hours at National Parks this August

Israel National Parks in August

During the month of August over 50 Israel National Parks will have extended opening hours – most of them being open until 1900 each day (except Friday.)  The idea is to allow people to visit these national treasures at different hours of the day – specifically as the temperatures moderate towards evening.

The full list is available on the National Park Website (in Hebrew) & below in English. It includes many of IsraelInsideOut’s favorites – such as the Madrasse, Caesarea , City of DavidHof HaBonimPalmachim Beaches.
